The Global Big Latch On Sign in and Count Update


  •   Everyone who attends your location has to sign the "Big Latch On Sign In Sheet" this includes hosts, volunteer, partners, community members etc. 
  •  You will notice there is now a space for "Breastfeeding Woman" please have all women at your location who provide their child with breastmilk check this box.  
  •  Your witness will complete the space at the bottom with details of the one minute count


For your count you will need to report three number this year -

  •   Number of children latching during the one minute from 10:30 to 10:31am (so tandem counts as two),
  •   Number of breastfeeding women attending (regardless of how the breastmilk gets into their child),
  •   The total attendance (everyone who came to your event and celebrated with you including yourself volunteers etc)



  •  During the one minute if an exclusively expressing mum hand expresses or pumps then that counts as a latch.
  •  Bottlefeeding does not count as a latch. 
  •  We are continuing to work with Exclusively Expressing Women to make the Big Latch On an inclusive event.

Express Yourself will be happening at the end of World Breastfeeding Week, watch here for more details or see newsletters
